The Series E Morris Eight represented a radical departure, at least styling wise, for Nuffields. A radical 'new look' included a waterfall grille; the headlamps were incorporated into the wings and the bonnet featured a rear hinge. The car also offered a "real" boot and the classically "1920s" running boards of the preceding Series II had gone. These cars spanned the Second World War in production terms, but the allure of a pre-war example can not be under estimated.


With a willing 918cc four cylinder side valve engine and a four speed gear box, this Post Vintage Thoroughbred can happily return 60 miles per hour and, if treated gently, a 40 miles per gallon return is easily within reach. your auctioneer has been involved in the restoration of a 1947 Austin 16 and can attest to what fun and useable cars those built within 3 years either side of the 1939-1945 conflict really are.

First registered in April 1939 this 5 keeper Morris 8 Saloon last saw the road in 1986. It is need of full restoration but offers an unsurpassed level of patina which is testimony to this little cars unwavering ambition to see the open road once more. A great affordable project car in the right hands which would make the ideal family classic, and as the late much lamented, motoring scribe Michael Sedgwick said "A thoroughly worthy car". We would not think to disagree.
